3. To meet Lucy, a tiny puppy on her first hike. 

She was so cute and fuzzy and when she curled herself up on my lap while I was trying to take her picture I almost thought I needed a puppy.

Paper airplanes were tried too but they didn’t turn out so well. So never mind about that. Kites are way better up here.
